White Castle

  • Law
It’s been a slow start to the year as far as legal news goes, so here are some stories from outside Las Vegas:
  • A $1 million suit says Elko County detectives exposed their confidential informant by including his name on a search warrant that was left on the table at the site of a drug raid. [San Diego Union-Tribune]
  • The US Supreme Court gave some borrowers relief yesterday by unanimously ruling that they have a 3-year right to rescind if the lender doesn’t deliver certain disclosures. [WSJ]
  • If you’re looking for a new job, White Castle is having a job fair today! [RJ]
  • If you have something else interesting to talk about, let us know in the comments!

It was posted in the comments on a blog entry a few days ago. Might give that a look.

Did anyone read the Boyd ListServ email thread that was making the rounds last week. I don't often log into my old UNLV email, but this was a glorious piece of insanity.

I should probably just post it in PasteBin…

The LGBT student group sent an email looking for board members. A student (who was sued for defamation earlier in her law school career) twice hit the reply all button asking whether the LGTB group supported marriage equality. Someone asked her to take it to a private forum, and she accused them of bullying her. Others chimed in, and she argued First Amendment and that people asking her to move to a private forum was gender/sex discrimination.

It was very entertaining.

Pretty standard list serve bullshit. An unwelcome flashback to law school.

(My email filters direct these straight to trash but I went back to pull this one after seeing @3:18's post)

No idea about that as I didn't attend Boyd, but sounds like one of those types who probably sat in the front row with her hand up all semester.

Thankfully it didn't hit the Alumni List serve. Sounds like typical law student BS…and more examples of the pussification of America. Thanks hippies!

I read some stories about Caesars Entertainment and many (if not all) of its subsidiaries filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Chicago tomorrow and how certain unsecured creditors in Delaware are opposing such efforts. I am assuming that Caesars Entertainment may be incorporated in Delaware given that the unsecured creditors are most likely relying upon that factor for attempting to keep venue in Delaware. Given the principal base of operations and founding in Nevada, why are not the creditors fighting to have venue in Nevada?

Check out Attorney/Trustee Shapiro's blog on why they will not file in Nevada at brianshapirolaw, interesting perspective..

Per the business reports they are filing along with 180 of its related entities in Illinois. Delaware only has the operating company. A venue fight shall be forthcoming.

Did anyone else laugh at the way this new blog subject says "It's been a slow start to the year as far as legal news goes, so here are some stories from outside Las Vegas:"?

Given the news about LSC, I just kind of found this to be about as opposite as it possibly could have been.

What more is there to say about LSC? Stay tuned for BK updates, perhaps?

Seems like the blog has in a small way been a reasonably positive and therapeutic vehicle for the legal community to mourn LSC and for those affected by the situation to vent.

It is somewhat troubling that the media have portrayed LSC's demise as some grand end-of-an-era celebration rather than as the mismanaged greed and chaos it really was. Serious question: Why is it that the media have refused to treat this as a scandal?

If they do indeed file bankruptcy, they'll have to do it within the next few days, since their receivership hearing is next week. Although bankruptcy supersedes most civil litigation, there's an abundance of case law that if a receivership is established prior to a bankruptcy being filed (usually a Chapter 11), then the receivership will stay and have precedence.

10:54 – Mismanaged? Yes. Greed and chaos? Most likely yes. What part is scandalous? What do you expect the media to report, exactly? If there is something to tell, we're all ears. I certainly wouldn't be shocked to learn there were misdeeds, but so far all we have heard is innuendo and vague, mysterious remarks.

First, how could you "miss" judge pollock (and no, that's not a fat joke, but that would also be appropriate); he was the worst judge in the entire family court (like from-another-planet bad). Aside from that, he hasn't even been on the bench in six months due to some medical issue (which, for some reason, allowed him to campaign, but not actually work as judge) with his brain (which disproves theories that he lacked one of those).

Once again, he is simply "The Eewok," instead of "The Hon. Eewok."
